Rangers FC Striker’s Future On The Edge Over Manager’s Fate: Should They Make A Permanent Offer?

Rangers FC head coach Graeme Murty will run out of his contract following this season and talks of an extension have not been released just yet. Chairman Dave King did not reveal any signs of progressive negotiations either and this could dictate some of the futures of the players as well.

King was quoted saying, “Graeme Murty was again thrust into an extremely difficult situation and continues to provide the stability and progress that we need at this time. Graeme can be proud of what he has achieved so far. However, on the managerial front, I emphasise that the board fully recognises the need for sustained stability in this area of the club.”

“Whoever is appointed must be able to meet the unique challenges of managing Rangers and ensuring immediate success. It is a priority that we commence next season with the best appointment we can make and that we move forward rapidly.”

Jason Cummings tops that list since he is serving a loan spell with the Scottish outfit for the remainder of the season. Murty brought the 22-year-old to the Ibrox in January and the move seems to have paid off.

Cummings has registered 6 goals in his 13 appearances and looks more than happy with the Gers, a hattrick against Falkirk in the Scottish Cup Final. He might not be too keen on returning to the Nottingham Forest after undergoing a torrid 6-month spell in the first half of the season.

Cummings was already a huge fan of the Scottish Premiership outfit, Hearts and earned himself a place in the youth academy. Unfortunately, he could not cut it for the senior team and was later released by the club in 2013.

He did break into the Hibernian squad and went on to make 149 appearances for the club netting the ball 71 times and furthering 23 assists. His impressive display while playing for the Cabbage earned him a £1m move to Forest.

The Scotland national team paid both his former clubs a fee reward for the development of the youngster and capped him at the senior level in November 2017 against the Netherlands. He is contracted to Forest for another 2 seasons.

Currently, Rangers might be out of the title race but do have a strong attacking lineup with the young Alfredo Morelos in the squad. O’Halloran has faced his fair share of struggles and the veteran Kenny Miller is facing the last stages of his career. Cummings is a perfect rotational option who could push them for an improved 2018/19 season.

Murty or not, David King should strongly consider making a permanent offer.
